SAP FI/CO has been around for a long time. From everything I've ever read it was the first module available and...
there are a lot of companies that have already implemented FI and/or large organizations that have multiple companies on a single instance. In many cases these organizations will decide to implement HR/Payroll on a separate system. There are many reasons for doing this but you needn't worry about integration because that actually works quite well while using ALE to distribute data and post financial documents. This article will discuss the steps needed to verify the systems can talk with each other.
To facilitate this process we will assume that the peripheral processes related to payroll and finance are already working. This article will not discuss how to solve those problems. The person implementing this process should be at least somewhat familiar with the payroll posting process. Knowledge of ABAP is helpful and knowledge of ALE is required.
